SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2014 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.

The mission of the journal is to publish high quality work from experimental, theoretical, and computational investigations on the fundamentals of combustion phenomena and closely allied matters. While submissions in all pertinent areas are welcomed, past and recent focus of the journal has been on:
- Development and validation of reaction kinetics, reduction of reaction mechanisms and modeling of combustion systems, including:
- Conventional, alternative and surrogate fuels;
- Particulate and aerosol formation and abatement;
- Heterogeneous processes.
- Experimental, theoretical, and computational studies of laminar and turbulent combustion phenomena, including:
- Premixed and non-premixed flames;
- Ignition and extinction phenomena;
- Flame propagation;
- Flame structure;
- Instabilities and swirl;
- Flame spread;
- Multi-phase reactants.
- Advances in diagnostic and computational methods in combustion, including:
- Measurement and simulation of scalar and vector properties;
- Novel techniques;
- State-of-the art applications.
- Fundamental investigations of combustion technologies and systems, including:
- Internal combustion engines;
- Gas turbines;
- Small- and large-scale stationary combustion and power generation;
- Catalytic combustion;
- Combustion synthesis;
- Combustion under extreme conditions;
- New concepts.
Note: Manuscripts on combustion technologies and systems need to include research approaches and results that address fundamental combustion problems of relevance to a specific application. Manuscripts of clearly applied nature that include device-specific results will be rejected without review.
